The flag of Georgia is white with a red St. George`s cross and four smaller crosses in each quadrant. The flag is known as the “five cross flag” and has been in use since the 5thcentury by the Georgian King Vakhtang Gorgasali. The four other crosses were added during the crusades and was similar to the Jerusalem Cross. The five crosses represented the five holy wounds of Christ. The flag was restored to use on January 14, 2004 but had been used as the symbol for the United National Movement political party.
